PRINTABLE REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS
ALL members will register directly with the Region! The on-line database system allows for electronic signatures. This includes signatures for Waiver and Release of Liability, USA Volleyball Code of Conduct, and Background Screening Consent forms. No paperwork needs to be printed and turned into the Great Plains office. Once you register on-line and your membership fee is received at the Great Plains office, your membership will be activated. A background screening does not START until the member has been activated.
ALL members must have a current membership (from previous year) or complete an online member registration before they can participate in tryouts for the current season. This does NOT include membership fees yet. THIS IS FOR TRYOUTS ONLY!!! . When they have been selected for a team, they would then pay for the membership at that time. All players must print a copy of last year's membership card (if before Nov 1), the current year's membership card (if membership has been paid and activated already) or membership application confirmation email and present it at each tryout you attend. Membership cards are only available to print from your membership account when you have a current membership. ALL OTHER PARTICIPATION AFTER TRYOUTS REQUIRE A CURRENT MEMBERSHIP.
If you register prior to the region’s signing date, you MUST select UNDECIDED as your club name. After you sign with a club, you must log back into your account and change your club affiliation. If you originally picked a specific club, and you are not playing for that club, you must contact the registrar – email@example.com, to have your club affiliation changed.
